Crawl, Reach, Trust

My Abigail Hope is 10 1/2 months old. It has been the craziest, most fun, completely exhausting, best 10 1/2 months by far.

I have been very blessed being her mommy. She puts a smile on my face everyday. She is my biggest blessing.

Recently we have been trying very hard to get her to crawl. Yes, she is 10 1/2 months old and is not crawling yet.

Now let me explain…

We put her on the floor ALOT EVERYDAY.

We lay her on her stomach, place a toy just out of her reach, and not back down.

We have even gone as far as putting her on her hands and knees.

But yet nothing.

If she can’t get the toy she will move on to the next toy (the one in her reach…not her favorite but she settles), next thing she can see in her reach to play with.

When we try so hard to get her to crawl, she will just lay there balancing on her tummy.

If you have ever seen someone crawl you know that one part of the body that is not supposed to touch the floor is the tummy…

Abigail when she tries the only part that touches the floor is her tummy.

No matter how hard my husband, my mother, or myself try we CANNOT make her crawl.

As I was working with her last night I began to think…

Is this what God sees when he wants to give us something but we can’t figure out how to get it.

We just lay there rocking on our tummies and then see something not as good but we settle for something other that what He has for us.

Just like we want Abigail to have her favorite toy in front of her, God wants us to have what He has in front of us.

The only difference between us and Abigail is the fact we have the Word of God to get us off our tummy and get what is in front…

We just have to be


Willing to move
Willing to make the effort
Willing to trust God
Willing to grasp what is ahead
Willing to trust God’s plan for your life

If you are too busy being distracted with the other toy your plan for your life then you will miss what God’s toy plan for your life is. Sometimes we, as humans, get distracted because we think we have the best plan and have it all figured out, but God is sitting there with a MUCH better plan and He wants to bless you with His plan.

God always has your best interest in mind. He has placed the best toy option out in front of you…you only have to want it bad enough to get it.

Trust in Him today and make the effort to see what He has laid out for you.
